This session is based on a sample set created from recordings of ponds. These sounds were recorded with a very special microphone, designed to capture all those mysterious sounds found in swamps, pools and smaller lakes. This device is capable of picking up all the scratching, hissing and cracking underwater noises, produced by plants, insects and everything else down there, revealing the secrets that go on right in your back yard.

On the occasion of the release of “Undesirable Creatures“; a collaboration with comic artist Matt Howarth, at February 26, 2022 there was a live stream event with a performance by the Elsewhere Project.
The main release includes the originial comic by Matt Howarth as a PDF file and the full version of the animated short movie
In this live stream event performance, the music from “Undesirable Creatures” was broken down into individual tracks & elements and then remixed and re-arranged live. Images and motifs from Matt Howarth’s graphic short story on which the initial music is based on were presented in the backdrop.
Before the actual event, the elaborate video and audio rigging had to be set up and the performance rehearsed. In this release the recordings and the footage of the dress rehearsal is presented.
In a soon to be following release all material of actual performance will be made available.
